Introduction: Bic Pen Bow & Arrow

A Bic pen bow & arrow is a good way to waste time at work or school. Be carefull these things really fly and could poke your eye out.

Step 1: Materials

Bic Pen
Rubber band

Step 2: Dissemble

Take apart the pen.

Step 3: Reassemble

Poke a hole in the center of the empty tube big enough for the end of the pen to fit.

Step 4: Add Ruber Band

Cut notches on both side of the pen tube to hold the rubber band in place.

Step 5: Fire!

Insert the pen pull back and fire.

i like this idea - however - cutting the hole in the pen can be tricky...how did you do it?

Now this takes me back. We used to make these in middle school; I got busted and served lunch detention for shooting the ink cartridges and getting them stuck in the ceiling tiles.

its worth making. it shoots pretty far. if you can try to find a pen with out the colored part on the top. that makes it go way faster

author
Lord+Jon+Bigglesworth made it!(author)2011-08-14

I think you can rip off the colored part at the top if you pull hard enough (or maybe I just got a defective pen...)

the air goes around the top of the pen and then pushes it out an dthne over making it go straiigter so leave it on

It'd be easier just to use a lighter and get the plastic soft on one side and push the cap through, then light the other side and push it all the way through, then get rid of the access plastic and you're good. It'll also hold the cap in place. TA DA

Ok, so i tried to do this one but when you make the hole it snaps. So i got a kilemetrico pen and cut just under it. use that instead of the one used so you wont have to make the hole large

You can add a target-dart for a blowgun into the ink cartridge itself, sharp part facing away. I did that (with 2 rubberbands,not 1) and it stuck in a wooden door at school

author
d3mond00d made it!(author)2011-03-22

Use skewers instead of ink cartridges >=).

Just a warning, if you use a knife, be careful. I did that and the knife slid off and gave me a cut that I can tell will turn into a scar XD. So, yeah, be careful.

CRUD. I finally get through 1 side of the pen, but then the drill battery died.

If you pull it back to far, the pen breaks.

it also works with a papermate but that red part that goes through the white part doesnt come off still works pretty good though

it works best with a knife. You can also use scissors or pooke it out with something that can reach through.

author

On a different project people were saying to stick a chop sick in the other end and push the plug out.

I took the pen ink thing out, then used the tip to push the bottom out through the pen "barrel" (white part)

when i make them i just take scisors and put them at an angle right below it and thrust upward. it takes off little shavings but hooks on to the end and pops it out. i was going to make an instructable on this when my friend showed it to me. if nobodies showed how to make the crossbow style with trigger, ill put that up.

Wow ace. We like the same stuff I guess. Remember I commented "GO CRYSIS" on your CD mounting instructables? If there is a way to be friends on this site I'd like to be your friend.

I think the best way to do that is to subscribe to each other's probikes. I will try to subscribe to you but I'm on my iPod so it might not press the sub button right. If not, I'm getting up early tommorow and I will do it then.

very good idea but if you want to make it more lethal just get a normal bic pen take everything out till its a tube and put a water balloon and rubber bandit and use either 6mm bbs or thin ink cartridges and insert ammo and aim pull and let go it's small and portable also great for airsoft wars with friends have fun and happy shooting :p

Well it works best with that kind, but i used a different kind and it's pretty good so yes you can use different types of pens but its harder.
